Full Moon In Pisces September 5th/6th, 2017: Out Of The Shadows

Full Moon Pisces September 5th 6th meaning

The Full Moon at 13 degrees Pisces of September 5th-6th (technically September 6th at 2:02 AM CST) is notable for being the first lunation to occur after the spectacular eclipse season of August, notably the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse of August 21st aka “The Great American Eclipse”. That eclipse took place at 28 degrees Leo; September 5th Mercury retrograde ends at 28 degrees Leo, “triggering” the eclipse at the same time we experience the first lunation since then. This looks to me like a lot of things hiding in the shadows recently will suddenly show their face.

 

Not that the things lurking in the background will be any easier to understand just because they are out in the open more. The Full Moon in Pisces would be potentially confusing and murky enough as is, but this Full Moon Continue reading “Full Moon In Pisces September 5th/6th, 2017: Out Of The Shadows”

New Moon In Leo July 23rd, 2017: A Real Showstopper!

New Moon Leo July 2017 astrology meaning

In keeping with the theme for July set by the previous Full Moon, the New Moon at 0 degrees Leo on Sunday, July 23rd (4:46 AM CST) will be bringing fireworks. However, this Leo New Moon is as much about love as it is about war; actually, it will be bringing both to the main stage. Expect a lot of theater and drama to externalize as this New Moon is applying to a conjunction to Mars at 1 degree Leo. Hot blooded!

 

The conjunction to Mars and a tight square to Uranus at 28 degrees Aries ties personal and global narratives together. Mars-Uranus is an aspect that often indicates danger; at the individual level, be careful while driving and when around sketchy people or situations, and prepare for drama or beefs to take on a life of their own. Globally, I don’t like saying this but this is one of those potential “shots fired” headlines. In less dangerous news, stories of sabotage should surface.

 

The positives that will come from the New Moon and Mars at the first degrees of Leo square Uranus and trine Chiron in Pisces are that of Continue reading “New Moon In Leo July 23rd, 2017: A Real Showstopper!”

The month of July is nothing if not exciting – even if not always exciting for the right reasons. An ongoing grand trine in the fire signs – Uranus in Aries, Mercury, Mars, Sun and North Node in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius – provides enthusiasm and optimism in spades!

 

All the fire signs exhibit an innocent and almost childlike openness to adventure and new possibilities. Whatever crap life throws your way, the fire signs are sure it’s just an aberration and not really how life is supposed to be. There’s eternal faith that something better is in store somewhere. Coming off of literally years of brutal cycles in rapid succession, the grand fire trine this summer should do a lot to restore basic optimism that life is still ok, we’re still ok. The astrological fire emphasis coinciding with summer makes me think of the ways fire itself is used in summertime: campfires, bonfires, fireworks, grilling and barbecuing. The innocence of the season is as great a time as any to rekindle the flames of innocent joy.

 

This is most true in July during Cancer season, as Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon and associated with home, hearth, family, food, roots, heritage, national heritage and heartland. Never a better time to focus on the simple perennial joys of living, the small comforts. Cancer is also a sign that is aware of the darker depths but will go to great lengths to remain blissfully unaware of them – a major misstep at this point in time.

 

However, mixed in with this¬†joie de vivre¬†are strikingly different motifs of anger, passion, betrayal, and danger. Continue reading “Astro Space Weather: July 2017”
